Stay on board, Hornets fans - we're making a short pit stop now, but it's going to be a fun and exciting ride back to the top.

Hornets take down Grizzlies, 95-80, in final preseason tune-up - 12/21/11

In the first Hornets game in the New Orleans Arena in nearly 8 months, the team faced off the against Southwest division rival Memphis Grizzlies.

Hornets trade Chris Paul to Clippers for Gordon, Aminu, Kaman, 1st Round Pick

When it Matters Most, can the Hornets Finish what they Start?

Today's column concerns how susceptible the Hornets have been this season to squandering large halftime leads. In particular, I discuss how I feel the team should have fared in these games, how they actually did (worse than expected), and a possible reason for why they under-performed the way they did.
